Story behind the story: Drumstick was raised on Carl & Sharlene Wittenburg's farm in Douglas County, Minnesota, with the aid of five young women from the local chapter. Well done, ladies, and congrats to Drumstick (and pal Wishbone).

The people in agriculture I talk to -- in California, Iowa, New York, and elsewhere -- want tax cuts and reforms. Most farms operate as small businesses. They want simplification of the tax code and more of their own money to invest in their own families and enterprises.
